Petites Lettres Rouges

We all have favourite books. One of my favourites - the book, which belonged to my grandparents - my mother's schoolbook. It's a Lithuanian literature book for 5. grade. Quite symbolical, that the year of publishing is 1936, the year my mother was born. The title of the book is "Sakalelis" (Little falcon), so it was a pleasure to me to stitch this title and three birds. I hope ar least one of them is a real falcon. I also stitch the year of publishing - 1936. I had the idea for finishing from the very start - it will be a cover for this book. I tried to make the sampler as vintage as I could, and I hope I succeeded... My choice of linen 30 ct WDW linen Natural/Straw, floss - GAST Mulberry, Rhubarb, Crescent Colors - Chili Pepper and Madeira 031432
